ExperienceCraft is a free youth-led, online Minecraft and Discord community for youth ages 7-15 who have experienced the death of a caregiver, sibling, or close member of their community. The initiative is supported through a partnership between Connected Camps and Experience Camps. ExperienceCraft was honored in Fast Company’s Innovation by Design Awards for 2023.

ExperienceCraft offers youth an online setting where:

  • Grief is acknowledged and normalized
  • There are opportunities to meaningfully contribute
  • Community members feel a sense of belonging
  • Youth can both give and get peer support

College-age near peer-mentors from Connected Camps moderate the server, along with youth ambassadors from the community itself, keeping it safe while also providing scaffolded support for how to engage with the technology meaningfully, responsibly, and in ways that are fair, inclusive, and empowering.
